Exactly one year ago (on March 19th, 2007), Anders Mildner gave up the blog and the company. Le Journal des Mouches decided to compilate many articles from this marvelous blog. One year later, the blog and almost all the Junk Musik website have been deleted.
What about Brainpool? Metro Jets? Mom & Dad? AGM? We have no news about the "Junkies" but we missed them every day.
Meanwhile, Per Gessle has been working in the new edition of The World according to Gessle, the first album with the P, C & C team (Per, Clarence Öfwerman and Christoffer Lundquist. Read about it.
I have two publishing companies: JIMMY FUN MUSIC & HIP HAPPY. SHOCK THE MUSIC is a publishing company owned by Marie Fredriksson.
INHOUSE MUSIC was EMI Sweden’s publishing company, nowadays it is merged into the big balloon called EMI MUSIC PUBLISHING.
MUSIC FOR MONEY has never been a publishing company (a publishing company owns the rights to the songs, not to the actual recordings!!!). MUSIC FOR MONEY has changed name and become ELEVATOR ENTERTAINMENT and owns for instance the master tapes (the recordings) of Mazarin and Finn 5 fel! and Son of a Plumber and The World According to... and En händig man and Helena Josefsson’s first solo album etc. etc. EMI has licensed these rights to be able to release the records officially.
GESSLE MUSIC was a publishing company but it doesn’t exist any more. All these songs (for instance Gå & fiska!) are nowadays published by JIMMY FUN.
ROXETTE RECORDINGS, owned jointly by Marie & myself, is a company who controls the rights to Roxette’s master tapes & recordings. EMI (and other record companies) license these rights to release the records and downloads.
FUNDAMENTAL couldn’t be called FUNDAMENTAL because there’s an English record company called just that (I wasn’t aware of this in time for printing the sleeve or creating the sperm logo...). FUNDAMENTAL became GESSLE RECORDS which doesn’t exist anymore. Nowadays these rights belong to ELEVATOR.
ROXETTE PRODUCTIONS is responsible for tours, merchandise etc.
HAPPY ACCIDENT was another publishing company (R.I.P.). Its catalogue is now controlled by the ever glowing JIMMY FUN.
TOM BONE is a publishing company partly owned by me. TB works with other artists, The Sounds etc and is run by small town genius Lars Ewald. Check out their thrilling website.
That’s the deal.
Another day, another record!
